Sling Media To Bring TV To BlackBerry Smartphones

  • January 7, 2008
Gadget freaks no longer have to tear themselves away from their BlackBerries to watch TV on their Slingboxes. Sling Media said it will extend the mobile version of its service that lets users watch their home TV on an Internet-connected computer to BlackBerry smartphones later this year. The announcement was made in conjunction with the start of the International Consumer Electronics show kicking off today (editor note: Mon. Jan.7). The SlingPlayer Mobile software already runs on mobile platforms including Windows Mobile and the Palm and Symbian operating systems. The mobile software costs Slingbox customers a one-time charge of $29.99. Sling Media was acquired last year by EchoStar Communications.
